Ann Masemore

Ann's favorite coat is screaming orange brushed wool with orange leather trim and fireman's toggle closures; an unlikely combination. Just like her coat, unconventional materials and unlikely color combinations are the inspiration behind her hand woven, recycled plastic, one of a kind handbags and totes.

It's hard to ignore plastic's presence in our world. And we all want to make our part of the world a little better. Recycling some plastic into a unique, durable handbag is one way to do that. Surprisingly, the texture of the plastic makes the bag already feel like it's worn in, but not worn out - just like a good friendship.

Recycled plastic - it's the new fiber!
